I’m actually a little amazed that Carpenter wanted jail time when this guy was allowed to plead without explaining why he broke the law. I mean look at the guy. He looks like he may not even be trainable and he took this action on his own??? I have no doubt that Daley is right, that he took direction from Conley (Conley probably had to find the form for him and help fill it out) and that this was all under the direction of Moracco who wanted him “to get to the bottom of the controversy…”??? Ha, he didn’t want anyone to get to the bottom of it. He wanted to find a way to help his buddy Conley. As if they were even capable of conducting an investigation. Again, what we have is a bunch of dumb, arrogant azzes who were over their heads but had their own personal agenda.
In other words, Conley and Moracco are just as guilty at Hermann. Conley gets away with it by resigning (of course that was after he got enough time in for his pension thank you very much Frankfort and Moracco) and Moracco, in Frankfort’s infinite stupidity, get re-elected Mayor. It’s almost funny it’s so stupid. The interpretation of what Daley was saying is that Frankfort is being run by corrupt, crony crooks.
But plead guilty even though that crime was “defensible” according to Daley because Carpenter had additional allegations. And what, those additional allegations of wrongdoing were not defensible so plead guilty to the phone charge??? And it must be that the phone charge was the lesser offense to plead to. He got probation. Would the other allegation have resulted in jail time? So they let other “allegations” slide and let him plead and accept probation and not go after the criminals who directed his actions.
What a bunch of $hit and if people think that this whole thing doesn’t stink they can’t read between the lines. Hermann was a patsy too dumb to know he was being played for a fool by Conley and Moracco and they got away with it. Well, I guess we’ll let the stooges show continue in Frankfort being led by dumb and dumber.
Moracco won by seven votes so I have to hand it to Adams for being a relatively unknown and almost winning. And I still say that if more people came out to vote, Moracco would not be mayor.
